Viridor to process all plastic recycling in the UK

UK recycling and waste management company Viridor has announced that from next year it will be processing all of its plastic waste domestically.

This decision comes as the results from the company’s Recycling Index 2019, which measures public attitudes towards waste and recycling, show that 85 per cent of people believe that the UK should recycle and reprocess plastic waste at home – five points higher than last year’s figure.

The survey highlighted that the public view plastic as a valuable resource, with 89 per cent of respondents agreeing that plastic waste should be used to create resources that can be used again.
